PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- After teasing the public with dramatic and unlikely concept cars in two previous years, Cadillac used this year's Monterey Car Week to glimpse into a future that will actually happen.
GM's luxury arm unveiled the Escala concept Thursday, Aug. 18. The car is an amalgam of design, powertrain and new model ideas that will all eventually wind up in Cadillac's lineup.
Just maybe not in the same place.
"There's a lot of stuff that's being captured here," Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac's president, told Automotive News at the Escala's debut. "All of that won't necessarily find itself coming out in one car; it will be spread through the portfolio."
